Malaysia: The Penan of Borneo

The Penan people are little in stature, little in number and little in the eyes of the government. 

Gentle former nomads, the Penan are now on the frontline of a struggle to save the last unprotected rainforest of Sarawak. They are up against the Goliaths of Malaysian logging, multi-billion dollar conglomerates advancing on the last of Sarawak’s virgin forests, and leaving behind a wasteland of palm oil plantations.
